Bottom Line: This heartfelt, charming, offbeat and funny tale of a couple on-and-off the brink of wedded bliss never fails to entertain. Although running a tad long, it still remains an easily digestible, post rom-com (they’re already engaged, silly) that sails smoothly along on a sharp script and glowing chemistry between its two leads. Save the date, indeed.
